Cheap lolz, swashbuckling romance and essay crises

Jenny is a frighteningly bright Philosophy student, Tim is her flirtatious slacker of a flatmate. Come here to follow the life adventures of these two absolutely not stereotypical Cambridge students. You'll learn very little in the process, but I'll get better at watercolour.

The Clarkson Drive

Seriously, what is it with Clarkson? The Brits are unanimously crazy about the man. 'Clarkson for PM! Clarkson for PM!' WTF?! Just because he can be vaguely witty about the Nissan Qashqai doesn't mean he can rule your country, for chrissakes.


  1. Besides, he's not so intelligent, although he is funny...
    He is the archetypal alpha-male who thinks he has to conform to every little thing which is frowned upon nowadays, like hunting, and then blame political correctness gone mad.

    But I have to admit, I do not drive nor wish to so do, but Top Gear is pretty cool.

    And BTW, I find it quite amusing that the best lap time by a celebrity was accomplished by Ellen McArthur, ahead of a bunch of male car-nuts, since Clarkson claimed that there would never be any chance in hell to have a female present Top Gear. Just for the sake of it, because women and cars don't mix, apparently.

  2. yes that's my main problem with him - he's a huge misogynist, he knows it, he feels free to show it, and since he's worshipped by most men in the UK it's a bit of a problem.

    And yes he'll jump on anything offensive and approve of it. *coughEricZemmour*

  3. Jo Brand for PM!

  4. clementine for PM? what a shame she's french....
